Here at Master Divers we are incredibly proud to be running our popular Tec Rec Gas Blender course on monthly basis! With the same guaranteed ratio of 4 students to each instructor that we offer on all of our courses, we provide both student and instructor levels of training.
WHY TAKE THE TEC REC GAS BLENDER COURSE?
The popularity of technical dive courses is growing fast, and more people are diving with Enriched Air Nitrox than ever before. In fact, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course is now the most popular specialty on the market. This means in turn that the demand for enriched air tank fills is also increasing. However, there needs to be someone qualified on hand to fill the tanks needed to meet demand. This is where the PADI Gas Blender course comes in…
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
The Tec Rec Gas Blender course will help you stand out on your CV, setting you apart from other Divemasters, Instructors and MSDT’s, and making yourself more employable! Having Gas Blenders on staff is important for all schools offering Enriched Air Nitrox to their customers. Aside from being a valuable asset to dive operators here on Koh Tao, it is also a required qualification for many staff working in more remote locations elsewhere, and on Live-aboard vessels too. Plus, as well as the standard PADI curriculum, we’ll teach you how to operate a compressor in terms of basic maintenance and procedures – something that all dive professionals should know something about!
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
The Tec Rec Gas Blender course will train you as a qualified Gas Blender, allowing you to provide gas mixes to all appropriately certified consumers. You’ll learn more about the physical properties of oxygen, its associated hazards, handling requirements and what cleaning equipment is necessary. Finally, you will learn the five methods of obtaining the desired enriched air nitrox mix, the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as the various methods used to obtain proper helium mixes.
It is a very hands on course but as with all of our programmes, there is a little self-study to complete beforehand! The Tec Rec Gas Blender Manual is included in the course cost, so between this and your instructor, we will familiarize you with the all of procedures and techniques needed to get you out there as a fully qualified Gas Blender on completion of your course (certification fees are also included in the price).
You must be at least 18 years of age and a PADI Enriched Air Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization) to enrol.
The student level course costs 10,000THB, and is inclusive of all teaching materials, instruction, practice time and certification costs. If you’d like more info on becoming a Tec Rec Gas Blending Instructor, please contact us for more details.
The course runs over 2 days, and we do try to schedule it so it fits in best with the lives of working professionals. So typically the course will begin on full moon party day each month, and complete the day after, meaning you won’t need to miss out on group bookings for guiding or teaching. But as with any course, we can be a little flexible based on your requirements, so just let us know what works for you and we’ll try our very best to meet your needs!
